    my ms3 progress (now in easier to view sized pics!)

    i finally got around to working on my MS3 helmet just about 2 months ago, i had a few time sinks along the way, but here's the update to where i'm at so far.

    here we go got the keyslots removed and put in the one with the circuit board molded in place.





    later on i decided that i didn't like how soft the details were in the dent so i posted here and fettpride stepped up to get me a new dent. here we go getting the new dent into place.





    a little bit of ca glue, bondo and fiberglass and there it was in place.



    a lot of sanding and a little primer and things are looking pretty good. also, since i'm doing rotj again, i wanted to be a bit more accurate than the last one so i sat down with a bunch of pictures and a dremel and started gouging out the physical damage.



    primer, primer, primer!



    about halfway done with the paint.









    i've gotten a little farther along since i took these pics but haven't taken any more yet. i've got the dome and cheeks done so far. next up is the killstripes. i'll be sure to take pics before i start on those.

    Yeah that dent replacement came out great. Progress looks good too!
    I PM'ed FP about a dent replacement too but he never got back to me. I'm sure he's real busy with the ESB holsters anyways.

    Re: my ms3 progress

    quick question. those diode things on the back of the helmet, that attach to the circuit board, is there anyone that makes those, or something i can use to get the same results?

    ooohhh ...



    I would say there are some scratches too much (red arrows)!

    Let the wrinkles get a bit wider and you donīt need any neckseal ...

    j/k

    Great paintjob and weathering on this helmet!

    I agree on the weathering, great job. I can't wait to see it when it's complete.

    i would agree with you that i did get a little happy with the exacto blade while doing up the scratches. but leave an old mans neck alone.

    They kinda look like end caps for tires but that would be too big compared to the key slots.

    Wow man ! You did a fantastic job on that helmet !!
    The weathering is superb !!

    And the dent replacement - really nicely done. It's harder than people think

    Grifter - sorry buddy - but you're right - I was in holster world PM sent.

    Looks great! Not sure I like the FP junk touching my junk though
    AND YES dent replacement is A LOT harder than most think. I second that.

    Time to go back under my rock for another 6 months.

    hey MS! good seeing you here, hope i didn't offend with the dent. but ya gotta think, by the time i got my helmet from you, your molds had probably seen a lot of helmets.
